Our guest on the podcast this week is Stephen Foskett, Organizer in Chief at Tech Field Day. We discuss the balance between defining industry-wide cloud standards and having the freedom to move quickly for a company like Docker. As they grow, they must navigate the democratic open-source process at their foundation. We also look at Intel’s new Cloud Integrated Advanced Orchestrator (CIAO) project that may be too late to the game to compete with OpenStack.
Our guest on the podcast this week is Tarun Thakur, Co-Founder & CEO at Datos IO. We discuss the importance of making recovery scenarios a priority with any enterprise cloud strategy. In the recent Delta outage, we saw the negative outcomes that occurred when several critical systems failed to switch to backups automatically. Though every enterprise is now on the cloud in some way, it seems we are only at the tip of the iceberg of moving systems to the cloud, with financial services and healthcare just joining the migration. The time is now to create better contingency plans to anticipate issues.
